How to make quarter note bows on a violin using a full bow not to sound whispery/airy or watered out, while still playing at piano volume?

My orchestra teacher wants us to use a full bow on each quarter note, but I still want to keep the sound quality good(without making the note blare or get too airy), but I also have to keep the volume at a piano. How do I do this?

To make quarter note bows on a violin, you need to start by clapping the rhythm and feeling it. Then, move your bow up and down following the rhythm given in numbers, 1,2,3 and 4. Find detailed instructions from http://violinfromscratch.com/learn-violin/rhythm-and-notes-and-beats-explained.

Having played the cello myself I applaud your efforts, but even if someone on here knew how to do it I would think it would be hard to articulate in a posting. Perhaps an advanced student such as the first chair could show you or you could ask the orchestra teacher how to obtain this information. Since you came on here and asked such a detailed question I'm sure you will be a great player if you are not already. Good luck with your studies. Ahh I see someone posted a link. Perhaps that will help.
